Dan Quinn Named 2021 Assistant Coach of the Year by PFWA

The Cowboys already knew they had a good one in , but it's nice when other recognize it as well. The Pro Football Writers of America clearly agree as they named Quinn their 2021 of the Year after the dramatic turnaround by Dallas' last season.

A few hours before the PFWA announced their 2021 award winners, Quinn's return to the Cowboys in 2022 was confirmed after he officially withdrew from other teams' hiring processes for new head coaches. stated during a radio yesterday that Dallas has given Quinn a multi-year extension to continue his excellent work.

The Cowboys defense was a dumpster fire under in 2020; 28th overall in both yards and points allowed. In just one season, Quinn helped bring the group up to 7th overall in the same categories.

Sure, getting a seemingly generational talent like in the helped. But Quinn's schematic changes and emphasis on turnovers also helped become a superstar and saw get named as a alternate.

Congratulations to Dan Quinn for this well-deserved honor!
